US Endoscopy announces full market release of the Lariat™ snare

Mentor, Ohio — June 3, 2014 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the release of the Lariat™ snare. The new Lariat™ snare features a multifunctional design helping to address a variety of resection needs including piecemeal resection and multiple polyps during GI endoscopic procedures.

The Lariat™ snare features three distinct sizes and shapes in one wire loop - 30mm oval, 10mm hexagonal, and 6mm diamond. This unique design provides physicians the control and flexibility needed for transecting polyps of various sizes. The stiffer snare wire maintains its shape and integrity after multiple resections while minimizing distal deflection.  

“The multi-stage design of the new Lariat™ snare has the potential to be a “one size fits all” snare for our Customers,” says Tony Siracusa, Vice President and General Manager of US Endoscopy. “The snare wire has built in memory points that offer physicians the optimal size and shape needed to address various sizes of polyps and complex polypectomies with one device - saving them the expense and time of having to use a second snare during a procedure.”
